Citing ChatGPT in Public Writing: A Guide

Citation for AI?

ChatGPT is an advanced language model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text based on the input provided. As a result, it has become an indispensable tool for various writing tasks, including blog posts, articles, and even academic papers.

However, it's crucial to acknowledge the source of the information or content generated by ChatGPT in your writing, especially when it's used in a public setting. This not only gives credit to OpenAI but also demonstrates transparency and credibility in your writing and avoid any potential licensing issues.

Here's how you can properly cite ChatGPT in your writing:

  1. In-text citations

When using information or text generated by ChatGPT in your writing, you can include an in-text citation in parentheses after the information or text. The citation should include the following information:

  • "ChatGPT" (without quotes)
  • The date you accessed ChatGPT (in YYYY-MM-DD format)

For example:

"According to ChatGPT (2022-12-25), the capital of France is Paris."

  1. Works Cited/References

If you're writing an academic paper or a formal document, you may also need to include a Works Cited or References section at the end of your paper. In this section, you should provide a full citation for ChatGPT, including the following information:

  • The name of the tool (ChatGPT)
  • The developer of the tool (OpenAI)
  • The date you accessed ChatGPT (in YYYY-MM-DD format)

For example:

ChatGPT. OpenAI. 2022-12-25.

In conclusion, citing ChatGPT in your writing is an important step in giving credit to the source of the information and demonstrating transparency and credibility in your work. By following the guidelines outlined above, you can ensure that you're properly citing ChatGPT in your writing.
